What does it means if CFS Lymposite count is 59 ?

What does it means if CFS - Lymphocyte count is 59? Can we took it for granted it is due to infection in brain? Or is there other alternative answer? My father of 80 years old has been lying at hospital for over 2 months and his condition is not improving. We had done brain CT, EEG , MRI which says Brain cerebral atrophy , Infarct, ischemia ... so on.

Hi wellcome to HCM.
Yes lymphocytes 59 in csf is in favour of infection,but along with it low sugar level and
high protein in csf will further add to favour infection.And appearance of cog wheal
appearance on keeping csf for little longer time will help further to come to conclusion
in case of tuberculosis. thanks

Hello.Welcome.In CSF normally lymphocytes are less than 5.Level of 59 indicates chronic infection like TB,fungal infection,syphilis,herpes etc.All these diseases will have to be differentiated.I really can't comment more since I don't have any more information.Good luck.
